About Mark or Betsy Tomaszewski

The Evergreen Cottages property is a family owned and operated vacation rental business. Happily owned and operated by the Tomaszewski family. We are a home schooling family and we live here on the property. Mark and Betsy have lived in the Bozeman/Livingston area for thirty-four years. We are an active family that enjoys all that the surrounding area has to offer; hunting, hiking,camping, exploring, four wheeling, horseback riding, swimming, fishing, etc. Mark is an award winning, remodeling contractor and a former home inspector in this area. Betsy migrated to Montana from southern Connecticut in 1982 after earning her college degree in Business Administration. Our children are working very closely with us on this project and are responsible for many aspects of making the vacation rentals an awesome experience for our guests.

Mark or Betsy Tomaszewski purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Mark or Betsy Tomaszewski chose Livingston

We love to own and operate our own businesses. As a couple and as parents of two bright young adults, we chose to buy this property after looking for several years for a business that we could own and operate together as a family. We love the Bozeman/Livingston area. When you arrive here as our guests you will understand why we chose this location. It is awesome. We have 2.5 heavily wooded acres about four miles from town and at the entrance to the Paradise Valley, one of the more scenic valleys in Montana. Plus, we are an easy fifty mile drive to Gardiner Montana, the Northern entrance of Yellowstone Park.

What makes this cottage unique

Proximity to town, to the interstate highway, to Bozeman, to hunting and fishing. All are wonderful benefits our guests can enjoy.

Our cottages are comfortable for a short stay or year around living.

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in this cottage. Beautiful area and a lovely view. The owners Mark and Betsy and their children were so friendly and Betsy was there to meet us when we arrived. She was always available to answer any questions. One of the nicest places we have ever stayed. Thank you Betsy and Mark.

Great place to visit in Livingston

  • 5 of 5

Very friendly people. Betsy was there to greet us at the beginning, walked through things. We were in Yellowstone most of the time, but she took the time to give us grilling utensils and other items as requested. Would definitely stay here again, if we spend more time in Livingston!

My family of four stayed for a week and the entire property was fantastic! Not only did we have beautiful surroundings of mountains and the Yellowstone river, our cozy two bedroom cabin was perfectly outfitted with everything we needed! As a bonus our daughter fell in love with the horses on the property and got to feed and play with them every day! We were thrilled with our stay and hope to return soon! Thank you Betsy and Mark!

Fly Fishing Trip

  • 5 of 5

A very nice and spacious cabin located approximately 3 miles from Livingston. The cabin worked very well for our fly fishing trip during the Fly Fishers International Fair. The washer and dryer were so nice to have. The owners were courteous and friendly. We would book this cabin again.
